No pun intended, there's even a PCA thread about it but I can't remember what the title was.

But we came to the conclusion that he was an idiot with a size 14 foot stuck sideways in his mouth and that if we'd paid into a pension during our working lives, we were entitled to reap the benefit of it in our decrepitude.

Well, it took a while but, finally, I found what got Bichard in bother with the press on page 609 of 1022 of the record of evidence given to the committee.

He is pressing for people to think about every option. He says some difficult choices have been made on things like tuition fees and sanctions for job-seekers so shouldn't those difficult choices be considered with older people. It is an academic who uses the 'work until you drop' line.

Several times Bichard complains that civil servants think dealing with the needs of an expanding ageing population is in the 'Too difficult' category and won't think about all the options. If you don't ask the question 'Would it be acceptable to encourage volunteering with carrot and stick?' how can you know what the answer is?

You can work 'til you drop if you want fm, but I find that the older I get, the less bothered I can motivate myself away from the retire to do nothing at all unless i feel like it notion...

An unbothered retirement is the one goalpost that should remain sacrosanct in my mind!

That probably means you won't bother to have a look at the committee's proceedings.

If you did you would see that Bichard, and others, were concerned about how to improve the lives of the elderly so as to give them a longer, happier retirement.

That's what makes this thread's title so silly.

F.M Maybe they could just give them a better pension or a paid for holiday once a year and just have loud mouths like him put down, or you could put him to use heating pensioners flats with all that hot air than comes out of his
